. we don't know whether -- the republicans are parading through here at cnn today, they're all saying how hyper partisan he now feels to them. the country doesn't see that. he has a lot of people, as vin will tell you, a lot of people rallying, love what he's doing. >> it's remarkable too, because remember the line that was so memorable that brought -- rocketed barack obama to the forefront of the american consciousness was his 2004 speech at the democratic national convention, that there are no red states no blue states, this is the united states of america. when you think of his inaugural address, there wasn't one line that crystallized or captured the nation. from a republican perspective it would be wonderful to hear some sort of harkening of tone, some kind of outreach or olive branch to the right and unifying the country. >> at that point, remember, there was this huge fiscal crisis he was facing so he won on all this hope, and then he gets into the job and remember, he really started before he started. and he was dealing with that terrible fiscal crisis so his inaugural

twitter, facebook or cnn, news of emergencies travelled a lot slower in 1849. so there was no reason to explore the power vacuum at the time. in fact, atchison slept most of the day, tuckered out bay lot of last-minute business in the senate, some things never change. still, some of atchison's friends reportedly could not resist. >> that night, some of his colleagues in the senate woke him up in the middle of the night to ask him to appoint them the secretary of state and other members of the cabinet. >> all in good fun, it seems, but out in kansas they've got their story and are sticking to it even in you're not a believer in the legend of the 24-hour president of atchison. today of all days you should think of his legacy. >> that's the reason that president obama isn't taking any chances and is being sworn in on the day of his inauguration. >>> indeed. president obama has been sworn in for his second term and apparently the story of david rice atchison is history that will never repeat itself. i'm candy crowley on the national mall in washington. cnn's coverage of the president oba

in ceremony. let's get some analysis from our cnn political analyst, david gergen. he is here on the national mall with me. and analyst jeffrey toobin. the oath he takes, jeffrey, is different than the presidential oath? >> it is much longer around has none of the eloquence and grandeur of the very brief presidential oath, which is mandated in the constitution. >> explain why? >> only 35 words. >> the presidential oath. >> the presidential oath there is no vice presidential oath called for in the constitution. what the -- but long in the late 1880s decide there had should be a vice presidential oath, too, but maybe this is a lesson about congress. congress made it much longer, more complicated. no one would even attempt to memorize the vice presidential oath. so john paul steven, who administered the oath four years ago, add card and i'm sure sonia sotomayor will have a card to read it to the vice president. >> you worked for four presidents, david gergen, so take us a little bit inside this vice presidential ceremony we are about to see. for joe biden, who spent a lifetime in politi

americans do well. it's interesting that you mention that because there was a poll recently that cnn took and the question was do you hope that president obama's mollcies will fail? republicans, 52% said yes. independents, 28% said yes, democrats 4%. so 52% of republicans in this poll said they hope president obama's policies will fail. >> there is a difference between policies and the person. the president, to me, has -- really has a big problem with spending. he is addicted to spending and those are policies that will hurt our country long term. we need to focus on getting people back to work, focus on jobs, the economy, the debt and the spending. that's what will improve the quality of life for american families and for hard-working taxpayers. people feel they want to get value for their tax dollars and they are not getting it now, candy. >> might be a distinction without much difference though people saying i want him to fail and you are saying it is policies, i don't like his policies and if they go in place you certainly you don't want those poll cities to feel. >> this is a ti

covered since being to cnn and there's a palpable, i think, anticipation in the air about what kind of barack obama we're going to see now that perhaps the shackles are off in the sense that he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected. he's got four years left and it's an opportunity for him to really go for it. >> well, i think we're going to see a president with a new level and a new kind of resolve as we did through the campaign. i think we're going to see some of the things we heard about already in terms of immigration reform and new moves around gun safety. i think we'll see some progress on the peacekeeping around the world, and we will see an emphasis on economic growth, which is absolutely key. >> now, he's obviously facing big, tough challenges certainly economically, and also with the republicans who still hold the house. it's a fine line, isn't it? he's already shown a sign since he got re-elected he's not going to take any nonsense from the republicans and he's being pretty tough on them. but that's not necessarily going to help him get stuff done. it may, if anything,

during your second term in office, our political pundits cnn contributors margaret hoover and paul begala. margaret, you were in the bush white house between the first term and second term. how conscious were they then to legacy, to how to avoid the problems that ultimately did pop up in the second it term? >> there weren't problems in bush's second term like in reag reagan's or clinton's or nixon's by comparison. the problem was maybe a question of misspent political capital, the handling of katrina was terrible and that did impede his ability to get legislative success through. but i think very conscious, especially of the second inaugural address and contents of it. when you go back and read second inaugural addresses that one does stand out as one that captured a moment and captured a vision that the president had for the country at that time. remember, this is the first address since 9/11 to the country as inaugural address since 9/11 and captured what we all refer to as the freedom agenda. that was the bush doctrindoctri. it captured that moment the way most second innall gra

they're doing. i will watch the cable news shows, usually flipping between cnn, fox, and msnbc, partly because i want to hear what's happening and also because i want to hear how they're spinning it, what their views are. probably by the time i get home atneath i already know the major stories because i'm getting e-mail blogs from friends or i'm connected to various web sites that will present breaking news as it comes. i will turn my view -- my views tend to be on the more progressive side so i'll reading thises like slate or the huffington post. what i think i do, even if i try to separate the parts i do because i'm an academic, and that i do as a citizen -- is kind of what we suggest in the book, which i think we need to be news grazers. we need to sample from different sources. i should add in that list the daily show. i'm a regular viewer of the daily show. >> host: what's the important of the daily show in your view? >> guest: i think right now the daily show, and to a somewhat lesser extent the core rather report speak truth to power and do a great job highlighting the important
